Dr. Dorsha James About the Campus RX Leaders
Dr. Dorsha James has known since childhood she wanted to be a physician. Affectionately referred to as “Dr. Dorsha”, for the past decade, she has diligently worked to educate and treat people who don’t feel well. This Michigan native earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from The University of Memphis and her medical degree from James H. Quillen College of Medicine where she graduated magna cum laude. She then became the first African American female to be accepted into the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at the prestigious Vanderbilt University Medical Center. After completing the program, Dr. Dorsha began working in the ER at Southern Hills Medical Center in Nashville, TN delivering compassionate and expert care to a multi-ethnic community with many language and socio-economic barriers. This required her to hone her people skills and her ability to explain complex conditions in a simple, easy-to-understand manner. Now as a traveling physician, she uses those same lessons to work with patients in various hospitals across the U.S.
Dr. Dorsha has over a decade of experience and has seen firsthand how non-emergency visits to crowded ERs can have a negative effect on patients who just want relief quickly. Campus Rx allows physicians who are as passionate as Dr. Dorsha to use the modern concept of telehealth to give students the opportunity to receive the medical answers they seek in the privacy of their home, dorm room or even their car.
